Tapioca...Good for the Skin Too!
Tapioca comes from starch that is extracted from the cassava root and is consumed in a variety of foods worldwide. So what does it do for the skin? For starters, rich in Vitamin A, it brightens & smooths the complexion! Packed with antioxidants, it provides free-radical reduction and aids in cell turnover as a result. Also rich in magnesium and other minerals, Cassava provides anti-inflammatory and healing properties to wounds as well! Check out one of my top skincare picks that contains Tapioca starch and a many other beneficial compounds and extracts, from Skinerals- below:
